The St George’s flag will fly over Number 10 Downing Street for England’s remaining World Cup matches after Stamford and Bourne MP Nick Boles called for a show of patriotism.

Prime Minister Theresa May made the pledge during Prime Minister’s Questions on Wednesday after Mr Boles launched an online petition to campaign for the move for buildings, including police stations, court houses and town halls, to fly the flag of St George.

She told MPs: “No 10 will be flying the England flag on the day of each of England’s matches from now on. We will be encouraging other government departments to do the same.”
